Third GARUDA Partners Meet – Bangalore March 2008

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on February 13, 2008

GARUDA is a collaboration of science researchers and experimenters on a nation wide grid of computational nodes, mass storage and scientific instruments that aims to provide the technological advances required to enable data and compute intensive science for the 21st century. One of GARUDA’s most important challenges is to strike the right balance between research and the daunting task of deploying that innovation into some of the most complex scientific and engineering endeavors being undertaken today.

The Department of Information Technology (DIT), Government of India has funded the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) to deploy the nation-wide computational grid ‘GARUDA’ which will connect 17 cities across the country in its Proof of Concept (PoC) phase with an aim to bring “Grid” networked computing to research labs and industry. GARUDA will accelerate India’s drive to turn its substantial research investment into tangible economic benefits.
